Plus Ultra

I have always loved maps. During my childhood summers in Canada I collected illustrated maps of major North American cities, meticulously hand-drawn and painted by the aptly named company Unique Media.

Unique Media also did a fabulous world map, which graced the wall of my bedroom in the days before Plus Ultra.
